I had issues with this book because the cheating happened over such a long period of time. Michael is such a freaking idiot!
Do the vows not say, "For better or for worse?" The heroine lost her father to a murder-suicide less than a year ago, and her own mother was in denial about the incident itself.
I will NEVER understand infidelity no matter how authors try to make us feel sorry for the stupid as* cheating liars!!
Ok. I feel better now. Of course, one could argue, "for better or for worse," but engaging in such an incredibly intimate act-the MOST intimate act-with someone else while married is just cowardly, stupid, and wrong!!
Aside from the cheating, the immigration subplot was depressing and distracting. Lydie's friends seemed a little "touched."
Finally, the writing style was a little choppy for me. Just not my cuppa, but I can imagine it being a better read for other readers.
